Hi, my name is Abbeth, I am an art teacher living in Portland, Maine, and I am going to show you how to make bendable figures out of pipe cleaners. So you can use any color you want for this and you only need 2 pipe cleaners. So take out 2 pipe cleaners, leave them evenly layered together like this, find your centerpoint with your fingers and then gather the pipe cleaners together evenly with your other hand and twist a little loop into the pipe cleaners to make a head. Alright, you're going to pull 2 of those 4 ends up to make hands or make arms and then you're going to twist about an inch down on the remaining 2 ends to make a body and then you're going to fold in these arms to make them a bit more proportional and you're going to twist those extra little ends around right below the head and then you can do one last little twist on the end to put some hands on the end of those arms and now that you have this little person you can bend them however you want, you can make them be running by bending the legs, you can bend the arms however you'd like. You can make them excited and cheering, you can really do whatever you want and you can make as many as you want cause they're so simple. My name is Abbeth, and I just showed you how to make bendable figures out of pipe cleaners.
